Andrew Williams was born in 1964 in Haida Gwaii. He is a carver of argillite, silver and gold as well as a graphic designer. He is part of the Raven clan in the Old Masset on Haida Gwaii. His work is a blend of traditional and contemporary art and shows his passion for his Haida Ancestory and the "old stories".
The Octopus is a powerful sea spirit helper. In the Aboriginal cultures the number eight is considered to be a magic number. This is reflected in the appeal and reverence of the Octopus. In Haida mythology, the Octopus is called Devil-Fish and is believed to be the bringer of wealth.
